Attention! You can customise this product to your needs.
Standard Watt Pilot consists of 2 high-performance polarizing optics components placed in precision opto-mechanical holder 5APH79T-1. Variable attenuator/beamsplitter incorporates a high-performance polarizing cube beamsplitter which reflects s-polarized light 90 while transmitting p-polarized light. A rotating quartz Phase λ/2 Waveplate is placed in the incident polarized laser beam. The intensity ratio of those two beams may be continuously varied without alteration of other beam parameters by rotating the waveplate. Ratio can be controlled over a wide dynamic range. Pure p-polarization could be selected for maximum transmission, or pure s-polarization for maximum attenuation of the transmitted beam.

varna Divides laser beam into two beams of manually adjustable intensity ratio
varna Convenient 90deg angle between reflected and transmitted beams
varna Large dynamic range
varna Broadband transmission
varna Negligible beam deviation
varna Low dispersion for femtosecond laser pulses
